Wow, Rick Steves! Thank you for your loving heart…
For more than twenty-five years, Steve has hosted the ‘most popular travel series on PBS’, along with writing ‘best-selling’ European travel guides, earning him a very fine fortune.
“Twenty years ago, I devised a scheme where I could put my retirement savings not into a bank to get interest, but into cheap apartments to house struggling neighbors,” he wrote on his blog. “Rather than collecting rent, my ‘income’ would be the joy of housing otherwise desperate people.”
It was in 2005 when Steves bought the complex, Trinity Place, and has been working with the YWCA to provide homes for single, low-income mothers ever since.
“Imagine the joy of knowing that I could provide a simple two-bedroom apartment for a mom and her kids as she fought to get her life back on track,” he said.
Trinity place was almost in full capacity in 2016!
Steves latest?…He has given the complex to the YWCA!
A man with a fortune and shares…aww, the joy that results…
Hope your day goes just like you want,
